The Sangean DT-800BK is a strong little weather radio. It is easy to operate and feels like a quality piece of kit.
It is ideal for hiking or any sport or task like one-hand operation.
Features Sangean DT-800BK
The Sangean DT-800BK also has a surprising amount of functions and customizations via the menu settings – much more than one would expect – which is firmly into what I’d call the enthusiast-grade radio category.
For this reason, it is a bit disappointing AM reception on this device is not better.
The Sangean DT-800BK has a lot of icing on the cake. Otherwise – FM RDS, the feature to internally recharge AA batteries, dynamic bass boost, built-in speaker, Am/FM, and multiple bandwidths, ability to disable soft mute, and all of these are essentially pro functions.
